BREAKING NEWS: President Eyring will dedicate the Paris France Temple

Hey, everyone! I learned something neat about the Paris France Temple dedication that I had to share. I don't know why I wasn't aware of this, but President Eyring's wife lived in France for a time during their dating and courtship, and they actually lived in France for several years following their marriage. While Sister Eyring's health is not good enough for her to attend this temple dedication, President Eyring has been sent to preside there. I had expected President Uchtdorf, as our European apostle, to be asked, but knowing now about President Eyring's connection to France and its people, I couldn't be more pleased to be wrong on that. He is being accompanied, as I expected, by Elder Neil L. Andersen and his wife, who have multiple connections to France, and by our French-born Presiding Bishop Gerald Causse and his wife. I wouldn't be surprised to hear of representatives from the Europe Area Presidency and the Temple Department being in attendance as well. For more on the preparation for this dedication, click here. Enjoy!
